I still have a FreeBSD VPS at Tilaa.Any thoughts ?
And wrong(I am being provocative here).
That is true but FreeBSD is no longer available in the installable OS despite the advertising ...And wrong
As soon as you deploy FreeBSD, the Vultr cloud orchestration takes over and spins up your instance in your desired data center. Powerful, flexible and secure cloud servers available in 25 worldwide locations.www.vultr.com
What I plan to do is drop any medium-to-small providers that stop supporting Freebsd like a hot rock. If that means I'll wind up on AWS, so be it. AWS won't notice us one way or the other, and it seems the community support there is pretty good.
Ahh - that was a late arrival, after RC6: 9470a2f7da488f3c14051e39691fbfddcf2aa0feAnd then there are situations where I would need support - I mean real support. For instance, since Rel. 13 my KVMs tend to occasionally just hang somewhere after the "Timecounter" line, and I don't know why.
I prefer bare metal but when digital ocean made their announcement I deployed a bunch of em. I created backups and have had good luck converting them into new FreeBSD systems. Not really sure why they did what they did..When Digital Ocean stopped supporting FreeBSD I went looking for alternatives. So far I've tried Amazon EC2, Arpnetworks, Linode, Vultr all of which seem to do a great job of supporting FreeBSD. I need IPV6 and there was a glitch or two along the way but in the end all four supported my FreeBSD and IPV6 needs fine.
In another thread I listed some pros and cons of the four services.
